Title:  Surviving and thriving in the post-pandemic workplace –  What you, your company, and your industry can do to keep women at work

Historically, the tech world loses 85% of female engineers in the first 15 years of their careers. With the pandemic, this statistic has gone from bad to worse. As we continue to watch the pandemic’s disproportionate toll on women, we’re learning valuable lessons about the gender disparity in the workforce. Intel Senior VP and Chief People Officer Sandra Rivera will share her personal and professional experiences navigating the pandemic, she will provide real-world examples of how companies can better support and enable the success of female employees, and she’ll share strategies to sustain an equitable and inclusive work culture during – and beyond – times of crisis.

Sandra L. Rivera is executive vice president and chief people officer at Intel Corporation. She leads Intel’s Human Resources organization and is responsible for driving greater business results through a culture that embraces diversity and inclusion as well as being responsible for the company’s policies and programs related to human resources worldwide.

Before assuming her current role, she led the Network Platforms Group, which was a global organization of over 3,000 employees that drove the transformation of network infrastructure to Intel-based solutions and enabled breakthrough ways to integrate Intel’s silicon and software portfolio to create greater customer value. The organization was one of the Data Center Group’s fastest growing businesses, enabling Intel to become a market leader for network logic silicon, an annual $20 billion market segment.

Rivera joined Intel in 2000 as a marketing director after the acquisition of Dialogic Corp. Before joining Intel, Rivera co-founded and served as president of The CTI Authority and served as president of the computer telephony division at Catalyst Telecom.

Rivera holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Pennsylvania State University. She sits on the Equinix board of directors, is a member of Berkeley’s engineering advisory board and is part of Intel’s Hispanic Leadership Council.
